Wusthof Epicure Fan
I love how these knives feel in my hands. I was a big fan of these knives when they first launched a few years ago. The updated feel and look of these knives is great--I will definitely continue to expand my collection.

I'm impressed
I've used Wüsthof Classic knives all my life and have been very happy with them, but I was able to test one of these out for a few days and I think I may have become a convert! This knife feels as familiar as my old chef's knife, but it's so much more comfortable in my hand -- and I'd never had any complaints before! I also like the modern, matte and logo-free look of the new black handle. Even if you think you're perfectly happy with the knife you have, I'd encourage you to give this one a try the next time you're in a store.

comfortable performance
While not the the largest knife in my growing arsenal, this little beaut is perfect for so many tasks. The handle is velvety, has a nice weight, super sharp our of the box. And unlike the Wusthof Classic, no full bolster! You can have the full blade sharpened, which is great because I plan on having this for decades! German steel durability FTW!!

Great knife
I bought this one for a second home as I was tired of carrying the knife back and forth. It is well balanced and fits my hand well.

A real kitchen work horse.
Everything about this knife met my expectations. Arrived on time and in very strong dependable shipping packaging. Not too large or too small, very balanced, easy to handle, good for chopping, slicing, pounding out garlic, and carving up a chicken. For the price I have no complaints.

I really wanted a Wusthof knife as my first "real" chef's knife. Thought the 6" would be a good start, will see if I like the size. It's also $100 cheaper than the 8"!

I was able to try this knife when I attended the Knife Skills class. I fell in love! This beauty feels perfect in my hands. It is a fantastic kitchen tool.
Tanya E on Apr 9, 2016
Needed another chef knife as its my favorite size and this seems fine, have only used a few times so far. I don't like knives that have that little bump in the handle so this fit my needs.
Laurel F on Apr 9, 2016
I have a new kitchen and am celebrating with a new knife. Truly, I could use information on sharpening my 'older' knives.
Specifically, I like the balance and accuracy of these knives. oh, and the sale price.

This product had great ratings, but the 8" was $100 more, which doesn't make sense.

Lana H on Nov 27, 2016
Is this knife good for a left-handed user?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is.
What advantages, if any, of 8" chefs knife over 6" chefs knife?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe there is any advantage for everyday cooking. I find the 6 inch to be very big and perfect for every chopping job including cutting up large pieces of meat. I certainly think it's easier to handle. The 8" is too big for me and my husband.
What is the angle of the cutting edge of these knives -- usually either 15 (Asian) or 20 degrees? Thanks!
Robert S. G on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's 14°.
Do you deliver to Australia?
Tezza on Dec 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we do ship orders internationally.
